TThis Narrator Just Shot to the Top of my List!
The story was well rounded out.
When I realized this story could be categorized as a 'romance' selection, I gave it a cautious try. I usually find romance novels very short on story, and what story there is, is only used to link together the bedroom/sex scenes. This one surprised me by having a good beginning premise and a very different main character. The situations, in which they found themselves,, also were different than the usual story presentation. And the love/sex scenes fit into the story quite well. Occasionally a bit too much detail, but still OK.
As I continued listening, I suddenly took an objective look/listen to the narrator, instead of staying immersed in the story. I began to question if the reason I was enjoying this book was more because of the narrator than the actual story. I still don't know the answer to that question. But that narrator put so much expression into the words, it was amazing. And she gave longer than usual pauses where they actually would come, in real life. The voices were distinguishable, for the most part, although a bit more use of the lower pitch would have given more distinguishable sound to male voices.
Some of the story became a bit far-fetched, especially during the last few scenes, but " ... the suspension of disbelief ..." took care of that.
Guess I'll have to try a second book by this author, and the same narrator, to see if my original impressions carry through to their other collaborations.
